Provider Bio

About the Provider

 Sarah began her career working in the U.S. and Africa as a health policy advocate, educator, community developer, activist and researcher. The time she spent in Africa working with World Vision, the Peace Corps and UNICEF showed her the strength women possess, as well as the pain of loss and what it means to care for women.

 Today, Sarah is honored to care for women, and she enjoys working with women and their families throughout the lifespan. She appreciates the tangible difference that can be made in the lives of women by providing support during pregnancy and promoting health at every stage of life. Her clinical interests include promoting physiological birth through evidence-based practice.

 Sarah has served on the board of the Zimbabwe Artist Project and SeneGAD, an organization focused on gender and development in Senegal. When she’s not working or volunteering, she enjoys spending time with her family and fulfilling her lifelong passion for the outdoors by skiing, biking, hiking and camping.
